Gathering for Halloween

It's officially October which means all the "early Halloween decorating stigma" is officially over. Have you been popping in to your local thrift stores and checking out their Halloween merchandise? They normally start putting it out the same time big box retailers do around here. I picked up two pieces recently I'd been wanting to share with you all. I don't want to spoil a surprise I have for next week so I have a very boring photo to show you. Next week though, pop in to see them styled!

I think you can create such a unique and interesting look by mixing old seasonal decor with a few pops of new decor with the funky and truly one of a kind stuff you run into at the thrift store. As always, if you're not yet thrift shopping- start!

Time for MY FAVORITE #thriftscorethursday entries!

Wanna Play? Here’s The Rules!

  • We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and treasures.
  • Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it!
  • Want to get featured? Add the #thriftscorethursdsay hashtag, Follow the hosts (@the_gathered_home, @cassie_bustamante, @thebohoabode and @maggieoverbystudios) and tag a friend to play along, too!
  • Each week, Cassie from Cassie Bustamante, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Maggie fromMaggie Overby Studios and Myself (The Boho Abode) will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
The best part? There are 4 regular posts to check out every Thursday! Yup, you’ve got more thrift scores to look at. I know you’re not disappointed. Ha. Click on my beautiful cohost’s faces below to check out what they’ve scored and featured.


  1. Can't wait to see what you're up to for Halloween!

  2. I haven't made it out to the thrift store enough this Halloween decorating season; I need to fix that, because I've found some great stuff in years past!


Let’s hear from you!
